Keaton played the title character in the 1989 version of Batman and its 1992 sequel, Batman Returns. He was also nominated for an Oscar for his turn as an actor dogged by his days playing a superhero in 2014’s Birdman.

Spider-Man: Homecoming will be the first film in the franchise to be produced by Marvel Studios. It stars Tom Holland as the web slinger and is set for release in July.
